New Image



"When the flute players couldn't think of what to say next
they laid down their pipes,
then they lay down themselves
beside the river and just listened.
Some of them, after a while,jumped up and disappeared
back inside the busy town.But the rest --so quiet,
not even so thoughtful -
-are still there,still listening."--Mary Oliver

Lovely. Thank you, Yolanda.

Guess what! Thursday my husband, daughter, and I are flying to Seattle! We'll be there for 11 days. We're very excited.
